Sony claims to have built its 10 millionth Raspberry Pi this week from its contract manufacturing factory in Wales, doubling staff in order to keep up with demand for the small and cheap ARM-powered PC.
That total was reached in just five years, and the popularity of the computer has also inspired a plethora of similar devices to be produced around the world.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has always been happy with its relationship with Sony and was pleased when it announced that Sony would be making its machines for it.
"The last five years has seen unprecedented growth across our Pencoed facility… Our growth has been intrinsically linked to the success of the Raspberry Pi and we are delighted to reach the 10 million manufacturing milestone," claimed Sony UK TEC managing director Steve Dalton OBE.
He continued: "This is a significant achievement for everyone involved in its production, especially our devoted Sony Team, the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and distributors Premier Farnell.
"It is also a significant achievement for the Welsh manufacturing sector to have an internationally successful, high volume, low-cost electronic product manufactured right here in Wales.
"This technology and growth has challenged our highly skilled team of engineers and technicians to develop new processes and drive innovation through the spirit of continuous improvement."
Dalton did not stop there, though, and added that Sony and the Pi Foundation have introduced a "made in Japan" version for its more local audience.
"In addition we were able to support the Pi Foundation further by introducing Pi manufacturing to our Japan counterparts and there is now a ‘made in Japan' version of Pi," he added.
"We look forward to continuing this successful partnership, reaching the next significant milestone and creating even more of these revolutionary computers."
The first Raspberry Pis were made in Taiwan and China, with manufacturing being brought to the UK in 2012 after it became it was going to be a hit.
V3 reviewed the 64-bit Raspberry Pi Model B last year, giving it a five out of five rating. The Model B moniker is in homage to the Acorn BBC Model B computer.
